The majority of owners in the UK are happy with their home with those aged over 55 the happiest, but tenants are not so pleased with where they live, new research has found.
Overall 83% of home owners said they were happy with their home compared to 54% of tenants renting from a private landlord, according to the survey from TheHouseShop.
Renters were also much more likely to be unhappy with their current property. Some 21% of private renters said they were either fairly unhappy or very unhappy compared to 8% of owners. This means that tenants are more than twice as likely to be unhappy with their homes.
